It is Father’s Day weekend and a pretty big deal. Obviously it is as day we honor our Dads. For Golfers it is US Open Weekend. But if you are the Dad of a soccer player in Michigan, it is tryout weekend. I will be spending the weekend watching my daughter play the sport she loves in front of Coaches who will decide if she is good enough to be on the team.
Tryouts are stressful this year, because my daughter will be changing clubs and if all goes well, to a club that is very close to home and convenient for getting her to and from practice. As a former team sport athlete, I appreciate what my little girl is going through and understand the life lessons she will learn that will help her later on. I am very proud of the Student and Athlete she has become and I couldn’t ask for a better Father’s Day present than watching her be successful at something she loves.
